New MeMe on the Motivation Station

Now that my kids are grown I don't really do a weekly meal plan any more - I don't feel as though I have to so I don't - most of the time it's just me and my husband if our son is around he usually eats a dinner plate that I make up for him for when he gets home from work around 10 pm - our daughter is back at home now but she rarely eats at home her schedule is so busy. I do still cook every night but, it's really more of a what are we in the mood for type of food prep these days. During the week we keep it simple and share the chore - we grill a lot probably 3 or 4 nights a week it makes it nice for me since the grill is man territory in our house :) Yesterday morning at around 6:30 am I made this simple but, delicious macaroni salad for my husband and some of the workers to have for lunch with li'l smokies that I did in the crockpot with jelly and ketchup and mustard - they all really loved their lunch - the mac salad was a favorite. This was a simple and filling lunch for a bunch of hardworking guys.

Simple Macaroni with Shrimp and Crab

1 pound of elbow macaroni
2 ribs celery sliced thin
1 - 6 oz can tiny shrimp (don't drain)
1 - 6 oz can of crabmeat (don't drain)
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 tsp celery seed

Cook and drain macaroni.
Place the macaroni in a large bowl add all of the above ingredients including the liquid in the canned fish. Mix well - refrigerate until well chilled.

Mmmmmm - almost better than kettle corn! Definitely better than crappy candied nuts.
